    See any company that wants to be 'relevant' and joins in any meme... Which is weird because you see the likes of Toverland showing how much the park has evolved over 10 years... But I guess the only addition of any actual worth since 2009 at Thorpe has been Swarm, so not much can be said for the past decade...

    The Alton Towers Dungeons - New for 2019

    Personal interaction? They'll be pushing people out the door so they can fulfill any form of throughput...

    Nice to see Bobbie Jobbie starting to put in the effort; the stuff since Forbidden Caves (Spinner retheme and Dreamcatcher themeing) is a step in the right direction... Now they just need to add some actual quality to the mediocrity

    Didn't realise Vogel Rok wasn't running 3 trains at all tbh... All positive stuff though, I like the idea behind the phone notifications for queue times especially...

    Is Nemesis the best Invert?

    IT IS AWESOME! THERE IS NO COMPARISON! But don't try to understand. Don't try to come to terms with it. Don't even try to THINK about it! I'm really surprised it took this long for someone to reference the original backstory...

    Hocus Pocus Hall

    Here's a question, are fairytale stories IPs? Could the legend of the Flying Dutchman be considered one? What about myths about Nordic Gods? Does taking inspiration from real life places and stories consist as an IP? N.B. Obviously Pardoes is an original character but just because the park created that character does that declassify them as an IP?

    Thorpe Park Rides & Attractions Game 2018

    Did you lot even FINISH the last Towers or Chessie ones? Someone needs to think up a new off-season game, since now people are throwing toys out their prams over the winner...

    Hocus Pocus Hall

    I think the bigger concern will be in a few years when there are about 28 million versions of a (for example) How to Train Your Dragon themed area/attraction and it loses any sense of actual individuality or appeal... And the inevitability that one is awesome and another is utter crap...

    Ahh, the old Hyper going along the old CCR route rumour... Nothing new with that one either...

    'I'm a Celebrity' Maze

    Didn't this attraction spend most of last year shut anyway? Little to no difference if it's not replaced (which it won't be this year)...

    'I'm a Celebrity' Maze

    Any money spent on it could've literally been used on ANYTHING (even polishing Varney's car fleet) and it would've been a better return...

    Always thought the expectation was that plot of land was the next area to be invested on? Gotta keep the goons interested whilst there's bugger all else on offer...

    Screams and Ice Creams

    Someone's been inspired by the Disney food blogs; but how many pictures of Merlin Pizza Pasta can one stomach?
